I been there before its a nice area, the port area is nice. Also I highly recommend going to the Cementary which many of the victims in the Titanic were laid to rest. Take a tour it was very interesting.

Shearwater Aviation Museum, at the air base on the Dartmouth side, all about the Naval Aviation history of Canada.
Lots of activities on the historic properties waterfront.
Sat afternoon means good cheer and a maritime sing-a-long at the Lower Deck on the waterfront in Halifax.
As mentioned the Maritime Museum also HMCS Sackville the last WW2 Corvette, Theodore the TugBoat and a host of other boats ships etc...
The Citadel is worth the walk up the hill if just for the view, Point Pleasant Park was nice (I heard it was devastated by Juan a few years ago)

I have not been to the Shearagua Aviation Museum, however I have been to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and it is superb. Also in Halifax is the Maritime Command Museum which I have not been to but will, next time I am in Halifax.
Hmmm....I had a fantastic time visiting Halifax back in September of '02 but I was spoiled by the lovely weather. I can't recommend my favorites (sea kayaking in Prospect Bay, a ride on the Harbour Hopper, the Public Garden) because the weather, it seems, will be sketchy when you're there.
Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is also good, as it is housed in an elegant old building that used to be the city's Post Office and Customs House.
